KITCHENER, ON, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW/ - The best in Canadian contemporary
art takes to the streets of Waterloo Region this week as CAFKA's 8th
biennial international public art exhibition kicks off Friday,
CAFKA.11: SURVIVE.RESIST. presents 20 artworks designed to turn heads on
the streets and in the parks of Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. With
a bronze dumpster, a wilted lamp post, crowd control barriers strewn as
if by a tornado, and an artist painting the Iron Horse Trail with a
bicycle, CAFKA's exhibition brings art to the people.
CAFKA.11: SURVIVE. RESIST. runs September 16 to October 2, 2011.
The Contemporary Art Forum, Kitchener and Area, is an artist-run
non-profit collective devoted to putting art in public spaces.
